PreGel Training UK

General Information & Policies

We are excited about your interest in partnering with PreGel for fundamental training. With over a decade of experience training students in the world of artisanal specialty desserts, you can be confident that you will leave our school with a wide range of knowledge, confidence, and support necessary for success.

PreGel’s in-depth classes are designed to fit all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Our gelato classes provide a broad understanding of how to produce these products and build a successful business based on quality. Our pastry and specialty frozen desserts classes focus on how to effectively produce and sell different pastry and dessert options. But in all cases, our signature approach has been to provide students with both a solid classroom learning experience and hands-on instruction. It is our personal goal to make sure that no one leaves our classes disappointed or ill-equipped to succeed in their business. Therefore, we make sure to teach the latest techniques in a fundamental range of traditional and trending dessert topics found on our Curriculums page. All subject matter is taught at each PreGel International Training Center.

As a general rule, classes last about eight hours and normally run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (lunch included). However, make sure to check the curriculum of each class for detailed information. The classes consist of two parts: classroom theory and hands-on participation. Our Chefs are always available during breaks if you’d like to go over the class topics or discuss your individual needs. Lunch is provided by PreGel.

Because many of our classes are offered on consecutive days, we recommend that you enroll in multiple, making it convenient and flexible for your personal schedule.

Attendees are encouraged to explore the world of gelato and desserts under the guidance of our distinguished instructors. Well-trained chefs and experts in the field will bring all of their experiences to the classroom.

A Certificate of Completion is awarded to each student completing any of our classes. The Certificate affirms that each student has successfully passed PreGel’s required test and reached a specific standard of knowledge.

Our fully-equipped International Training Centers offer a variety of the batch freezers, display cases, blast freezers, soft serve machines, pastry tools, and equipment that will give you a great opportunity to choose from the latest technologies in the business.

Recipes and instructions are provided for class use and are encouraged to be taken home.

We suggest you dress in comfortable, casual clothing. You must wear closed-toe shoes and trousers, as you will be working in a kitchen environment. Also, longer hair should be tied back. PreGel will provide lab coats to wear during class.

Hand washing and sanitation is mandatory in PreGel’s International Training Centers for your own health and the wellbeing of others. Be sure to wash your hands following general breaks, bathroom visits, and before touching any tools/supplies or making any product in the kitchen.

Mobile phones must be turned off or placed on silent at all times while class is in session. Though talking on the phone during class is prohibited, you may do so in the hallway outside of the classroom if necessary. Mobile phones are permissible during scheduled break periods.

Bags of any kind are not permitted in the International Training Centers, including, but not limited to:
suitcases
backpacks
laptop bags
purses
All bags can be placed on the shelf space in the locker room while in class.
